PPI-SA 2017 Coaches after a successful orientation!

This past week, PPI-SA inducted the newly selected 2017 coaches for the programme. The induction took place at Shongweni Spirt of Adventure Camp site as well as in the PPI-SA offices. The week started at the camp site, with all 23 coaches for 2017 as well as PPI-SA staff. An exciting addition to the camp was Joe Smith, PPI Global Organizational Learning Specialist. With the support and funding from Laureus Global, PPI-SA was able to host this week long training with Joe assisting the PPI-SA staff with the training and induction.

Another highlight for the month of February is the 4 participants travelling to Norway this week.later this week. Nomfundo Ngcobo (18), Thetha  Nxumalo (18), Meagan Montiere(15) and Ayanda Dlamini(14) were selected to represent PPI-SA at the Erasmus+Lead4Peace (youth leadership development programme) camp in Norway from the 10th of February – 16th of February 2016.

The teenagers are no strangers to travel since they already visited the Eastern Mediterranean Island of Cyprus where they represented PPI-SA last year.  The Cyprus camp resulted in the young leaders being invited by Nesodden IF Basket, a subsidiary of Nesodden Idrettsforening, to attend the follow up LEAD4PEACE camp, all expenses paid. We want to extend a HUGE thank you to the Nesodden IF Basket players and their family members, for making this opportunity a reality for our participants.
